DCT collaborates with professional, esteemed specialists from Girls to Women
Health and Wellness, The Elisa Project, Children’s Medical Center and several
other organizations to craft a poignant and guided post-show discussion so
audiences will leave the theater feeling educated and empowered.
“This exceptional play will forever change the way you look at the world of
Eating Disorders and those who struggle to regain control of their lives.”
~Dr. Elizabeth Hughes, Executive Director, The Elisa Project, a non-profit
organization that promotes healthy living and awareness of the signs of
disordered eating through educational programs and resources.
“This show is a wake up call. Our need to eat sustains us. Our
response to that need may kill us. EAT will motivate individuals to do
things differently in their own lives. Hopefully, it will motivate a
nation to stand up and make real changes on behalf of our kids.”
~Susan Sugarman, MD, MPH, FAAP, FSAM Girls to Women Health and Wellness, PA.
Dr. Sugarman is co-founder of Girls to Women Health and Wellness, PA, a
multidisciplinary medical practice in North Dallas dedicated to the physical and
